I’ve shared my caramel milk pudding before and today I am sharing its chocolate version.  Just like my popular chocolate cookies with cocoa powder, you don’t need chocolate to make this pudding. Cocoa powder makes this pudding very chocolatey just like my chocolate cookies.

This is the best cocoa pudding for me that my mother makes for a long time. This scrumptious pudding is a perfect dessert that you can easily make in almost 10-12 minutes.

How to Make Easy Chocolate Pudding

Mixing cocoa powder, sugar, flour and cornstarch with a whisk in a medium pan.

Next, add the milk and stir well.

Mixing the dry ingredients with milk.

Then, take the saucepan to medium heat and whisk continuously for almost 10 minutes until it thickens and starts to boil. When it boils, lower the heat and whisk for extra 2 minutes and take it from the heat. Finally, add the cognac/whiskey if using and whisk well.

Adding the whiskey into the boiled pudding.

Pour the mixture into serving cups.  If you pour the pudding into a liquid measuring cup, it will make it easier to divide the pudding into serving cups.

It has a nice dark skin on top which tastes good (it is not same as lemon curd’s skin).  So you don’t have to cover the pudding with plastic film.  If you prefer you can cover it. You can sprinkle shredded coconut or ground nuts on top if you like.

Let it cool at room temperature.  When it cools, you can keep in the fridge to completely set for 2-3 hours before eating.  If you like you can enjoy even before as it still tastes so good but remember that it may not properly set.
